The minke whale /ˈmɪnki/, or lesser rorqual, is a type of baleen whale. The two species of minke whale are the common (or northern) minke whale and the Antarctic (or southern) minke whale.

The minke whales are the second smallest baleen whale; only the pygmy right whale is smaller.

The whale breathes three to five times at short intervals before 'deep-diving' for two to 20 minutes. Deep dives are preceded by a pronounced arching of the back. The maximum swimming speed of minkes has been estimated at 38 km/h (24 mph).

An experienced cinematographer hoping to capture close-up footage of dwarf minke whales has to rely on a trick or two to lure them close. The result is one of the best shots he's ever taken.
